LG Model: DLG1102W - 7.3 cu. ft. Dryer (Gas) LG Model: WT1101CW - 4.3 cu. ft. Washer PURCHASE DATE: 10/17/2014 Although I am crazy mad in love with my 7.3 cu. ft. Ultra Large Capacity Top Load Dryer (the best dryer I have ever owned), I am still trying to accept my 4.3 cu. ft. Large Capacity Top Load Washer Front Control Panel and the low water level. I always wash just about everything on the Bulky/Bedding cycle because the tub fills up with water all the way. On all the other settings the water level barely covers the clothes (of course I stare into the glass top to watch the washing process) and I keep seeing the same clothes on the top that don't seem to go down into the water. I hope someone can explain this process.Till I feel clothes are being washed at the cycle the washer buttons suggest, I am not comfortable with the water level on Cotton, Heavy Duty, etc. All and all they are both heavy duty, well made appliances and very quiet.

These new HE washers don't get the clothes completely clean. Without an agitator you are saving your clothes from excess wear, but what good does that do when they are still dirty when they are done washing?!? I think that the spin and agitate cycles never really get going enough to render the clothing clean. I'm disappointed. Outside of that, the design is attractive and the features are abundant. I love the large capacity and quiet performance. I just wish it would get my clothes clean. Also, why is it just so difficult to state how much detergent one should use in your washing machines? I swear I've searched High and Low and still haven't found the answer anywhere in your documentation. It says refer to detergent bottle. You look on the detergent bottle and it often says to check with manufacturer of washer!! Ridiculous.

Great Dryer!

Cons

    Best Uses

      We replaced a Maytag 9000 which was unable to do small loads.This dryer is able to do small loads 95% of the time which is important for some delicates and other special items. We tried this dryer on comforters and it also performed very well although we did need to run it through a couple of extra cycles. While the controls look formidable compared to some older models, even my technology challenged wife has been able to learn the settings very quickly. Large loads, small loads, it does them all and after learning the settings, clothes are dry when the alarm goes off. We have not experienced that before.

          i was in the market for a dryer as mine quit working and was 15 years old, I searched online and read the reviews of many dryers, and chose this one. It is amazing, so many features, from the large drum and special cycles right down to the charming end of drying charm. I have been so impressed with my other LG products and continue to be with this one. I love the controls being in the front so easy to read and use them. My clothes come our perfect. I will continue to buy LG products, never been disappointed with anything I purchased from them.

                  I was worried about choosing a gas dryer after a lifetime of electric dryers. This LG model has a great variety of features and a beautiful chime to denote the end of the cycle. I'm really glad this choice worked out so well, because it looks like i will also need to replace my washing machine soon, too. Thanks LG!

                          Great dryer-LARGE drum-lots of options-just teach yourself -experiment. Sometimes you do not want your nice things to be bone dry-you can always add more time or increase the dry level.

                              We recently purchased this dryer (no steam option) to match the WT5680HWA to have matching capacities. We have owned the washer for 2 months and working well so far.

                                  My last one kept breaking so it had to be replaced. This LG is great! I like the light inside so I can see if all items are out. The lint trap is easy to clean. The cycles and adjustable settings make it easy to get the right amount of time needed to dry things without over drying. It's very quiet and plays a tune when done! But only if you want it to.

                                      I like all the options available to you for drying. There is only one thing I do not care for. When the cycle is done, the chimes ring out the tune and the dryer stops. Most other dryers will give you a few minutes of running time between the chime and the stopping of the drum. You have to be right there if you don't want wrinkled garments. My machine is in the basement.
